I used to use WMI to do this but WMI is not that reliable, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.

So what i want is to monitor the Exchange Retry Queue by Remote Powershell.

The output i am interested in is: Retry-Queue -Filter {status -eq "retry"}

Is there someone who can help?

We have looked into this and are going to create a new channel for the new PS exchange sensors that should be in the version after next if testing goes well.

No, these new sensors will all be based on Powershell since we also have noted the unreliability of WMI :/

OK we upgraded to the latest version, where can i find the Powershell sensor for this? Because it still says: WMI Exchange Transport Queue.

These sensors are still only in the preview channel and should be included in the next release. If you want to check them out, you can download and install the free version and then move it to the preview channel and update.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to move those sensors over when the stable channel has these sensors so they will need to be recreated on your normal PRTG server.
